COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy finally has the roster filled with his own players in his third year in charge.
He's hoping the new faces will help the Aggies bounce back from two disappointing seasons where they missed the NCAA tournament.
Texas A&M went 18-15 last season in its first year in the Southeastern Conference. It ended its Big 12 run by going 14-18 a year earlier, breaking a streak of six straight appearances in the NCAA tournament.
Kennedy says six new players have given him a different team, but that they're struggling to find consistency early.
Leading A&M's group of newcomers is 6-foot-8 junior college transfer Jamal Jones.
